FIVE STARS ON AMAZON!

"I am a big fan of Lisa Scottoline, but not so much of historical fiction. I preordered Eternal automatically when it was first available without reading the synopsis. When I received the book and looked at the topic, I was hesitant. However, from the moment I started reading, I was hooked. The characters drew me in. The depth of each one made me feel as if I knew them. I was with them through the highs and lows in their lives. I have been to Rome twice and tried to picture the locations where these families lived and their surroundings. The history and politics of the WWII era is once again a heartbreaking reminder of our past. Eternal is one of the best books I have ever read."

A thrill-seeking Harvard linguistics professor and an ultra-secret branch of the Catholic Church go head-to-head in a race to uncover the secrets of the lost city of Atlantis. The ruins of the technologically-advanced, eerily-enigmatic ancient civilization promise their discoverer fame, fortune, and power… but hold earth-shattering secrets about the origin of man.

Could this lead to a further consolidation in the publishing world?

Adding a "subscription service" these companies are using authors works to fund and grow their businesses without paying advances or fair ebook royalties.

Additionally as I have stated before the bundling of authors ebooks for a small fee hurts authors retail backlist sales.

What is your agent doing to protect you from these predatory companies?

The Trident Media Group has initiated business terms in contracts with publishers to protect author's interests both in North American and globally.

"Serial Box has been renamed Realm and is expanding to release original audio shows for free as ad-supported podcasts, as well as adding a subscription option. Previously, its audio stories were available to purchase a la carte. Realm plans to continue producing audio originals and expanding its partnerships. Co-founder and ceo Molly Barton said the new branding "better communicates our focus on the content, that we deliver stories that are truly a portal to another world."

The Author's Guild remains silent on the matter.
